ROCORI Spotlight

Academics

 A rigorous program is the standard for our middle school curriculum. The four core classes in math, English, social studies, and science are taken every day all year for all students in grades six through eight. In addition, we offer many elective options for students to take and explore, which include choir, band, art, theater, technology and robotics, family and consumer science (FACS), physical education, health, and Spanish.  We encourage students to take a variety of courses in a variety of areas to discover areas of interests and talents.

Philosophy

The faculty, staff, and administration at ROCORI Middle School are dedicated to creating an environment that enables students to experience a structured, caring, and positive learning atmosphere.  It is our belief that such an environment promotes self-respect and an equal respect for others.  Since our fundamental purpose is to provide for the education and development of all our students, it is our commitment to develop skills in our students that will enable them to reach their highest levels of achievement.

Extra-Curricular

A variety of programming options are offered in athletics, activities, fine arts, academic competitions and clubs at ROCORI Middle School.  These provide students an opportunity to further explore and develop the gifts and talents they have been given.  All extra-curricular programs are designed to balance each Middle School student’s overall educational experience and provide a way for them to have greater involvement and connection with the school and community

ROCORI Assessment Data 2017-18

Our district is committed to “making a difference today to create a better tomorrow”, and one way that we measure our growth is through state assessments. Minnesota uses the Minnesota Comprehensive Assessments (MCA) and the Assessing Comprehension and Communication in English State-to-State (ACCESS) tests to measure student growth and proficiency. This year is also the first year of the new North Star accountability system from the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE). The North Star system measures districts and schools on:

  • Academic Achievement in Reading and Math
  • Progress Toward English Language Proficiency
  • Academic Progress
  • Graduation Rates
  • Consistent Attendance

As a district, ROCORI scored above the state average on all five of the North Star indicators. Additionally, Cold Spring Elementary was recognized for scoring in the top 5 percent of the state for Progress Toward English Language Proficiency, and John Clark Elementary scored in the top 5 percent of the state for Reading Academic Progress. We are very proud of all of our students and all of our schools for their continued commitment. More information on each individual school can be found at the Minnesota Report Card.
